Maritime Aquarium Lighthouse Cruise Western Long Island Sound

Maritime Aquarium At Norwalk
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Venture out on Sat., Aug. 11 for rare close-up looks at historic lighthouses in western Long Island Sound during a Maritime Aquarium Lighthouse Cruise, a special boat offering at The Maritime Aquarium at Norwalk.

This August Lighthouse Cruise will get participants close to eight beacons in the western Sound: Greens Ledge and Sheffield Island lighthouses in Norwalk, Harbor Ledge in Stamford, Great Captain Island of Greenwich, Execution Rocks off New Rochelle, and Long Island’s Sands Point, Stepping Stones and Eaton Neck lights. 

The 7-hour hour cruise leaves the Aquarium at 9 a.m.  

Aquarium educators will offer histories and anecdotes about the lighthouses, and also – when they’re in view – point out waterfowl. 

Tickets are $75 ($65 for Aquarium members).  R/V Spirit of the Sound has a climate-controlled cabin but, because the best viewing is outside on deck, participants should dress for the weather. Binoculars will be provided, but bring a camera!

The Maritime Aquarium participates in the U.S. Lighthouse Society’s “Lighthouse Passport” program, a fun way to log your lighthouse pursuits. Aquarium staff can stamp the books of “Lighthouse Passport” holders for every lighthouse seen during the cruise. (Bring your “passport” or buy one onboard.) Plus, members of the U.S. Lighthouse Society receive 10 percent ticket discounts for Aquarium lighthouse cruises. 

Space is limited so advance reservations are strongly recommended. Get tickets at www.maritimeaquarium.org or call (203) 852-0700, ext. 2206.
